Heritage — Talks and Discussion
Author David Crerar will present stories from his book, "The Glorious Mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore: a Peak Bagger’s Guide" (RMB: Rocky Mountain Books). Few Vancouverites know of the natural beauty and adventure that lies within them, or even their names and history. David will discuss some of the history and secrets of the peaks, including Indigenous names, cultural significance, and uses; logging and mining; watersheds and waterfalls; old growth trees; plane crashes; cached whisky; first ascents; name origins; plants; mushrooms; wildlife; and, above all, fun and adventure.
